Decoding AI

2023 Hour of Code

Code Today, Lead Tomorrow.

We've designed and collected a collection of accessible online coding activities to help students understand the fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence, providing opportunities for hands-on involvement in exciting AI projects. 
The "Hour of Code" activities include app development, physical computing, game creation, block-based coding, and Python - all of which are free and web-based. Under the theme "Decoding AI", our mission is to inspire the next generation to "code today, lead tomorrow". Happy coding!

Share With Us Your HoC Stories

We are thrilled to bring our passion for EdTech and learning innovation to life once again for this year's Hour of Code! After last year's successful integration of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we are excited to introduce the fundamentals of AI through engaging and entertaining coding activities.

We'd love to hear your stories, experiences, and how your students are participating in this year's Hour of Code through our activities! Please take a moment to share your thoughts through this brief anonymous Google Form.

Your choice to share your contact information is entirely optional. Dalton and I are committed to fostering an inclusive and welcoming EdTech community, and your input is invaluable in this process.

Thank you in advance for your time and contributions!
